Ham Member Lookups: 10995


Greetings from Northeastern Pennsylvania! When I'm on the air you'll almost always find me on the low bands chasing DX.

Located precisely 2,817 feet (0.859 km) from the borders of PA, NY, and NJ, K2CD is situated on a very small corner lot (50' x 125'), and thus challenged in regard to antennas. Current antennas include a Mosley TA33-M on a 40' free-standing aluminum tower, a 12M/17M rotatable dipole, and a full sized G5RV in an inverted vee configuration with the apex up at around 40 feet.  On 160M I have clip on leads for the ends of the G5RV, which add 62' of wire to each leg, and yields a low and fairly broad SWR curve in the CW portion of the band. I have worked quite a bit of DX with this arrangement.

Confirmed DXCC Totals:
340 of 340 Current Entities Mixed
Mixed: 346 - SSB: 344 - CW: 330 (Including Deleted Entities)
Best PAQP Effort to Date:
Year: 2002
Class: Single Op. Med Pwr (150W or less)
QSOs: 1,041 - Mults: 133 - Points: 169,580 (Current Pike County Record)

Please look for me using the club callsign K3MX from semi-rare Pike County during the Pennsylvania QSO Party in October. All QSL requests found in the log are always answered promptly.

QSL Policy:
My QSL policy is simple: all direct QSL requests, provided the contact is found in my log, are answered promptly, usually the same day received.  An SASE, SAE, or IRC is always appreciated but not specifically requested. If you send via postcard, I return via postcard. DX contacts may QSL direct or via LoTW.  I NO LONGER USE THE INTERNATIONAL QSL BUREAU.  At this time I DO NOT upload stateside contacts to LoTW as I use an entirely different logging system for non-DX contacts. If you live in the lower 48 and require a QSL, please initiate a direct request. Thank You!

Thanks for viewing my QRZ.com profile. If we haven't already worked, I hope to meet you on the air soon.

73/DX, C. Michael D'Alto, K2CD
